Lamantine Software, developer of Sticky Password password management solutions for consumers and small businesses, is pleased to announce that Karel Obluk, formerly Chief Technology Officer at AVG Technologies, has agreed to join the company as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
“I’m delighted to be joining forces with Lamantine Software and to be working again with my old colleague Petr Bilek”, says Obluk. “Since leaving AVG earlier this year, I’ve been looking for investment opportunities as well as opportunities to provide promising companies with business development expertise. Lamantine has great technology, and I’m looking forward to helping them grow their business on the international stage.”
With over a million users and a growing awareness among PC users that they need to take protection of their confidential information seriously, Sticky Password is well-positioned to move into larger markets. In addition to managing and encrypting passwords and personal data, Sticky Password provides robust one-click online form filling. The small installation package incorporates the industry’s most powerful encryption algorithms and provides effective protection against phishing attempts, hidden key loggers, and identity theft.
“I, too, am delighted to be working with Karel again,” says Petr Bilek, Managing Director at Lamantine Software. “His extensive experience at AVG – running R&D, directing the company’s global technology strategy, and a short period in the CEO’s chair – will enable him to take a holistic view of our business and provide wise counsel on future directions.”
Karel Obluk began his technology career in 1991 as a developer and later team leader for database systems company VEMA. In 2003, he joined Grisoft (which would later become AVG Technologies), where over the next decade he held the roles of Vice President of R&D, Acting CEO, CTO, Chief Scientist, and Chairman of the Advisory Board. During this time, Obluk was also a member of the AMTSO (Anti-Malware Technology Standards Organization) board of directors.
